The aim of this course is to support and develop you for a career in the areas of Business and Management.
The course explores each of these strands progressively, whilst maintaining a holistic view of business within various contexts.
The Business strand introduces you initially to the scope and functions of business and gradually develops your understanding of the internal and external environment in which businesses operate.
The Management strand takes basic management concepts and theories to a contemporary and practical level and integrates organisational behaviour aspects with management and decision making.
Within your first year, you are introduced to areas including criticality and academic writing, in addition to developing a portfolio to support your professional development.
In the second year you will focus on research skills and developing yourr skills of enquiry in preparation for your final year Business Project (work-based focused). This also helps prepare you for your honours year modules (e.g. dissertation) should you wish to progress to the final year BA (Hons) ‘Top-Up’.
This content is also available for students on a Degree Apprenticeship, funded by their employer. Further information is available from the College.
There are no work placements but students are expected to be in employment for the duration of the course in order to support the work-based aspects of the assessments.
Attendance is typically one day a week. Please contact the College for further information.
